Martine Ford first started Spirit Yoga in Port Macquarie in 2010 after a desire to share her knowledge and passion for yoga with others. After a couple of years in Sydney, she is now back in her home town again. A former professional dancer, she has an extensive background in dance as well as numerous yoga studies/certification in: Power Yoga, Core Strength Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Kids Yoga.
"I aim to make yoga accessible and affordable to most ages by offering a mobile service, teaching in various locations including: home, office, halls and outdoors. I come to you so you can practice and be challenged in a comfortable environment."
Martine’s classes are powerful, playful and nurturing and you can practice a class locally, online or download one of her e-books on Amazon. She has also taught numerous classes, courses and workshops including presenting at Ekam Yoga Festival.
"Although, a quiet studio is what a lot of yogis are used to, my students in gyms and schools very quickly learn the benefits of practicing 'where they are'. They are more easily able to find 'the calm among the chaos' in everyday life instead of being easily distracted or ruffled, as this is their constant practice. After all life itself isn't always quiet and zen with a candle flickering peacefully in the background," says Martine.
Martine has trained with Duncan Peak and Power Living Australia Yoga (Advanced Power Yoga), Zenergy Kids (Advanced Kids Yoga), Jo Phee (Yin Yoga), Sadie Nardini (Core Strength Vinyasa - CSV) and Donna Farhi. She also has over a decade teaching experience.
